Last night I went to the second to last concert of Keith Urban's Get Closer World Tour with my good friend from high school. We got a head start and had dinner at a little whole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant in Des Plaines and then headed over to Allstate Arena for the show. I was pleasantly surprised by the opening act, Jake Wilson, and look forward to hearing more of him because I think he has a lot of potential.
Me and V before the show!
Smiling and playing
The main attraction, Keith Urban, was fantastic! He seemed so genuinely happy to be playing for us and was very personable and funny with the crowd. His banter came naturally as did his smile which made him seem just like a normal person who happens to have an amazing talent and 'day job.' Overall he put on a great show and the whole crowd had a ton of fun!
